About Hobart

Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, is a city that blends natural beauty and urban convenience. It lies at the base of kunanyi (Mount Wellington) and is surrounded by the bays and estuaries that lead out into the Southern Ocean.

It has a vibrant arts community, and is home to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Hobart has a number of annual and biennial festivals, including Mona Foma, the Wooden Boat festival, Dark Mofo and the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

Surrounded by orchards, vineyards and lush pastures, Hobart is well known for its wonderful local food. South Hobart is an inner city suburb, bounded by the City, West Hobart and Fern Tree. Fern Tree lies at the base of Mount Wellington, and due to its elevation often has winter snow.

About the Parish

We are a vibrant Eucharistically centred community in the catholic tradition. Our worship centres around the Eucharist, celebrated with dignity, with a committed choir and serving team, and as a pastoral space, in which people can come before God, encouraging one another in our discipleship, and drawing God’s people together.

Three services are held each Sunday at All Saints and one service at St Raphael’s. A number of services are held during the week at All Saints and at St Anne’s aged care facility, St John’s Hospital, The Rivulet and The Lodge retirement and aged care facilities. The rector and a pastoral visitor visit a number of hospitals and aged care facilities each week.

All Saints has a significant place in the community of South Hobart. The Church is bordered by the local South Hobart shopping precinct and an extensive retirement village/aged-care facility. The Church is open daily, and it, with the beautiful Church gardens, provides locals with a place of reflection and quiet. The Parish has a church shop, and also conducts a hugely popular monthly market, which supports local artisans, and attracts customers from across the city.
